It's That Time of Year!

Spring is great, isn't it? Makes you want to clean out your house, turns your thoughts to new possibilities in your life, and reminds you that summer will be here before you know it. Summer. And swimsuit season.

It's that time of year when everyone starts to think about dieting. At least, most everyone I know - including me (and Hotrod). I've been faithfully working out and watching my food for about a week now and I know it's the right thing to do. I just wish losing weight was as easy as gaining it. *sigh* Of course, Hotrod just made the decision to lose weight and six pounds fell off him. Men.
Besides my daily time on the elliptical, Hotrod and I have started shooting hoops at the park (it's a five minute walk from where we live) which is a great way to burn some calories and spend time with each other.
Who else is working on reducing? How are you doing it? What's your favorite way to exercise?


  1. I came here for a happy post and now I'm just sad. Swimsuits, ugh! I'm so not ready for the season and it's not fair. I'm writing my food and really watching, always hungry and not losing a pound. The DH is working out a bit and getting instantly slim and trim. I can't sand men. Ugh again!

  2. My work out consists of chasing the furry child around and running up and down the stairs at work.

    I don't say diet though. I've been watching what I eat and modify my food choices accordingly. Plus I've been drinking more water and getting more sleep.

    My favorite way of excercising though is salsa dancing or kick boxing.

  3. As you may know, I'm an advocate of Weight Watchers. I've lost 119 pounds and eat everything! (Subway is my favorite). I walk a lot and use weights while I watch TV.

    You can see my before and after pics here.

    It's never easy, but so very worth it. Good luck everyone!
